Limit for Hours on DVD using Toast?



Does anybody know how you can get as many videos as you want on a DVD using Toast 9 and also without menus (just chapters)? I guess the model would be Visual Hub (of which the parent company no longer supports). Visual Hub had an option to make a DVD without menus and add as many hours of videos (with an expected video quality reduction) as you wanted. Is there a way to make Toast 9 do this?

Toast's menus take up very little space on the disc but you can select no menu if you want. Toast will fit somewhere near 3-1/2 hours of video on a single-layer disc. You can manually set your average and maximum bit rates and set the audio bit rate to its lowest setting to get maximum content. You also can choose Save as Disc Image to have Toast make a DL-sized disc image file and then use the Fit-to-DVD option in the Copy window to further compress the video to single-layer disc (that's the approach I recommend).


Toast can only encode at full resolution. However, if you use another MPEG encoder to make the MPEG 2 (or MPEG 1) videos at a lesser resolution that still meets the video DVD specs Toast will use those to put up to about six hours (or maybe more) of video on one disc.
